Today I had arranged a Gold Work workshop in our village hall. Gold Work is a form of specialised embroidery using gold threads,wires and beads. It is a beautiful craft requiring patience, imagination,dexterity and lots of tuition! Our terrific tutors were Sue and Sarah from http://www.golden-hinde.co.uk. Fifteen keen, but certainly not experienced ladies, enjoyed the fun whilst trying to create a potential heirloom!
We all ate lots of cake and drank endless tea (thanks to my sister) and ended the day with a part finished small project. Mine was a heart in three types of gold work stitches proving to be a really pretty practice piece. This will NOT join my heap of unfinished objects I promise. I will put it on my blog when complete!Our tutors Sue and Sarah showing our group how to do Goldwork with endless patience and humour.Two beautiful Goldwork pieces completed and framed. These are just a little more advanced than my practice piece!
